Located at the heart of the Balkan peninsula, this landlocked country is one of theregion’s hidden gems.
A devastating war has defined Kosovo’s image for far too long, and visitors and tourists will soon fin
that there is much more to it. Beyond asphalt and dust, which at times seem overwhelming, one can discover
rolling hills, lush green forests and meadows, high snow-covered peaks and charming old towns.
Throughout history, the strategiclocation of this territory has made it an enviable possession for many
rulers, most of whom have contributed to its cultural diversity. Since antiquity, many roadshave passed
through the region, connecting inland areas to the coast, boosting commerce and nourishing the growth
of local craftsmanship. In addition to its central position, Kosovo’s underground riches made the area an
invaluable asset. Mines in Novobërdë and Mitrovicahave been exploited since Roman times, supplying
with minerals a dozen different invaders and militaries. (taken from publication on the link below)
